    Can anyone please identify the stone and hallmark? Looks quite old.

    My guess would be ONYX for the black stone...and unsure about the hallmark. But I think it is Sterling silver...

    not sure about the WM...but the huge copyright afterwards
    makes me think it is not so old...

    the stone looks more metallic than onyx.
    Hematite.

    Re: Interesting ring

    I think the ring might have been put under some sort of flame or extreme heat... which might account for the black look of the stone? Maybe? Just a thought...

    Rom. 10:10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

    Exactly what I was going to say, looks like it got tossed in a fire. Or at least the front part with the "stone" was exposed to something hot.

    Any way you can gently scrape off the soot?

    P.S. In your first picture it looks like a lot of long striations are scratched inside the ring. Maybe this ring was placed over something which scratched it a lot and it was used to push or poke something in a fire.

    Hang onto that ring. Could be a Birmingham mark but I have yet to find A WM with the circles. Still looking.

    Re: Interesting ring

    Are we all assuming it's black or did the heat do something to the stone?

    Or the glass or whatever it is.

    Hematite for the stone?

    Believe it or not, it was made by the Wheeler manufacturing company. That is a C over the W and a O under the M. http://www.wheelerjewelry.com/

    Good observation. Seems this one has been solved.
